Toronto Wolfpack are set confirm Quinn Ngawati’s return to the club this week.
League Express understands the Wolfpack are close to finalising the Canadian’s return to the club and could be in a position to announce it this week, with Ngawati potentially arriving in the UK as early as Tuesday.
The 20-year-old was part of the club’s inaugural squad and remained with the club following their promotion to the Championship.
He made three appearances for the Wolfpack as had a loan spell with London Skolars in 2018, making nine appearances for the League 1 club.
He decided to leave the club at the end of that season to pursue a career in aviation. However, he is now set to return to the Wolfpack, whose salary cap will not be affected by his arrival after other Super League clubs agreed to an exemption where the club can sign any Canadian athletes aged 21 or under.
Meanwhile, Chase Stanley is in contention to make his Wolfpack return in Wednesday’s Challenge Cup clash with Huddersfield.
Stanley arrived in the UK last week after his ancestry passport finally arrived.
Brian McDermott decided against putting him in the squad for the game against Leeds last Thursday, but confirmed he could play against the Giants.
“While there was some thought about putting him in (against Leeds) we let him have a few sessions with the players first,” McDermott said.
This week could see one player leave the club, with several clubs keen to take Gary Wheeler from the Wolfpack.
York, Bradford and Featherstone are understood to be among the teams keen to sign the 30-year-old, who has been with the Wolfpack since their inception.
